Eric Roberson


It is amazing that there are artist out there that you don’t get to hear because there not played on the radio stations. I came across this artist Eric Roberson his debut album “The Esoteric Movement” was released in 2001. I can’t believe I have never heard of him before I really like his music. Eric Roberson was born on September 25, 1976 and raised in Rahway, New Jersey. Eric was destine to become some kind of artist; he grew up in a musical family. When Eric was 5 years old he would tag along with his older sister while she took voice lessons. Eric was interested in acting, while in high school he performed in two musicals “Grease” and “The Tap Dance kid.” When Eric was 16 years old, he won a scholarship to Howard University in Washington DC, where he studied theatre. Eric landed a deal with EMI label as a songwriter and collaborated with some of R&B and Soul artist like Jill Scott and Musiq Soulchild. The years between 2003 and 2007  Eric has released five neo-soul albums and has had some critically acclaimed artist featured on his albums the likes of Marsha Ambrosius, Raheem DeVaughn, Algebra Blessett, and Lalah Hathaway, Eric got the nickname Erro from his peers. I really like all of Eric’s music it has that funky jazzy soul sound, he tells a story when he sings. My favorite songs are “Still”, “Rain On My Parade”, from his The Esoteric Movement album. “Just A Dream” is another beautiful song. It is a shame that Eric Roberson does not get more air play on traditional radio, maybe I would have heard of this amazing artist along time ago. Eric has a new album due to be released November 1, 2011 called “Mr. Nice Guy“, if it is like any of his other albums I can’t wait to hear it. You can hear Eric Roberson music on .
